I decided to redo the cyborg painting because I wasn't liking where it was going. I think a huge part of it had to do with the fact that I started painting way too early. I hadn't really established form or value, and I got lost during the painting process. I still have quite a bit of work to do, but now I feel that I can move forward! I really like the value study. I can't wait to bring out the darkest darks and lightest lights in the final. So far, I'd say this is about 5 hours of work or so.
